Angela is one of seven siblings – six daughters – Mamie, Joy, Paula, Susan and Mildred and one son Darryl. Her parents were both Ngaanyatjarra with her mother born in Wanarn and her father in Yanka, north of Blackstone. Her mother’s maiden name was Mitchell.
Angela was born in Wingellina community, just East of Blackstone. Her and her family travelled on foot across the Ngaanyatjarra lands to visit different family members, sourcing their food from the bush along the way. They lived for periods of time in different remote communities including Warburton and Blackstone. Angela attended school in Kalgoorlie before coming back to Blackstone to live.
Angela has worked extensively as a ranger for 11 years across the Ngaanyatjarra Lands and has started painting recently at the art centre. She paints the Seven Sisters story given to her by her mother.
